Falls of the Ohio

(#314) from Kentucky Life Program 314 (1996)

Kids hunt for fossils at Falls of the Ohio State Park, on the Indiana shore of the Ohio River across from Louisville. Dams and canals that tamed the original “falls,” a series of rapids that impeded 18th-century travel on the river, also uncovered a rock layer that is one of the largest exposed Devonian-era fossil beds in the world.

Trouble with video in Firefox:

This is a known issue with the Window Media Video format.

Windows Media plugin is no longer maintained in Firefox, causing it to stop working.

Solution: Change the Firefox configuration file.
  1. Open a new tab or window.
    In the "Location/URL" bar, type "about:config" and press Enter.
    (The about:config "This might void your warranty!" warning page will appear. Click I'll be careful, I promise!, to continue to the about:config page.)
  2. In the "about:config" page search bar, enter:
    "plugins.load_appdir_plugins"
  3. Double click the preference name to change the "value" to true.
  4. Close and restart Firefox. The video should now work once you reopen the page.
    If not, then the WMV plugin may not be installed.
